EP 31: Brian Lynn and Bruce Tague from Sportsmen's Alliance Join the Podcast

On Episode 31 of District of Conservation, Gabriella interviews Brian Lynn and Bruce Tague from Sportsmen's Alliance. Brian serves as the Vice President of Communications and Marketing, while Bruce serves as Vice President of Government Affairs. 

Sportsmen's Alliance first began as the Wildlife Legislative Fund of America and Wildlife Conservation Fund of America, the organization formed in 1977 after Ohio Ballot Issue 2 threatened Ohio’s trapping community. After leading the fight to successfully defeat the bill, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance was officially incorporated in 1978 as the number one defender of sportsmen across the country. During the summer of 2015, USSA’s name changed to the Sportsmen’s Alliance in an effort to decrease name length and enhance brand recognition.

Here's what they discussed: 

  • Introduction + Sportsmen's Alliance Basics
  •  How is SA different from other hunting organizations and who their partners are
  • Hunting bills (anti- and pro-) that have been deliberated across the US this legislative session — over 500 and what kinds of bills will be considered in the future
  • Why hunters should care about electing and supporting the right politicians
  • What David Bernhardt's confirmation to lead DOI means for hunters, anglers, and other outdoor enthusiasts
  • Hunting isn't a constitutional right, but is a right per right to hunt and fish amendments found in 22 states across the U.S.
  • Why hunters should be aware of anti-harassment laws in place in all but CA to protect them against bullying by anti-hunters
  • What the media gets wrong about hunters and how to counter negative portrayals
  • Final thoughts and how listeners can connect with them.
